Volume 5, Narrow and Wide Complex Tachyarrhythmias and Aberration – Part A: Core Cases presents 61 case studies to allow students to sharpen their skills in reading ECGs and diagnosing both narrow complex tachyarrhythmias (originating in the sinus node, atrium, or AV node) and wide complex tachyarrhythmias (ventricular, supraventricular with aberration, and pacemaker associated). There are also ECGs that present etiologies and mechanism for aberration. Each case offers one or more ECGs that illustrate various causes of aberration, highlighting features that help to establish its etiology.

Volume 5A - Core cases: Cases 1–36: Wide complex tachycardia/aberrancy – Core/illustrative cases Cases 37–61: Narrow complex tachycardias – Core/illustrative cases

Volume 5B - Practice Cases: Cases 62–121: Wide complex/narrow complex tachycardias – Practice cases

By the editor of the popular ECG Challenge series in Circulation.

Dr. Philip Podrid, the primary author, is an academic cardiologist and Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology at Boston University School of Medicine and a Lecturer at Harvard Medical School. He has taught ECG interpretation for more than 35 years to medical students, house staff (interns and residents), cardiology fellows, physicians, nurses, and EMTs.

About Podrid's Real-World ECGs Series


Podrid's Real-World ECGs are case-based workbooks that offer students, instructors, health care professionals, and physicians an indispensable resource for developing and honing the technical skills and systematic approach needed to interpret ECGs with confidence. ECGs from real patient cases offer a complete and in-depth learning experience by focusing on fundamental electrophysiologic properties and clinical concepts as well as detailed discussion of important diagnostic findings and relevant management decisions. 8 comprehensive volumes (6 titles with 2 additional volumes of practice cases) encompass 648 individual case studies that include discussion about the important waveforms and clinical decision-making involved. From an introductory volume that outlines the approaches and tools utilized in the analysis of all ECGs to subsequent volumes covering particular disease entities for which the ECG is useful, readers will take away the in-depth knowledge needed to successfully interpret the spectrum of routine to challenging ECGs they will encounter in their own clinical practice.

Kevin Ergle,  M.D.  (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)

This is a comprehensive overview of narrow and wide complex tachyarrhythmias.

The purpose is to expand upon ECG basics, with a focus on differentiating narrow and wide-complex tachyarrhythmias and aberrant conduction.

The target audience is clinicians, and the book is most helpful for electrophysiology or cardiology fellows.

The book opens with a brief review of relevant tachyarrhythmias and physiology. It then uses a series of core cases to work through examples of arrhythmias and uses diagnostic principles of ECG to differentiate tachyarrhythmias. The book builds well, starting off with cardiac physiology underlying ECG principles, followed by case examples to enable readers to work through the cases to build foundational knowledge. Using a blend of written descriptions and pictorial examples helps to reinforce foundational principles.

This book helps readers learn more about an arrhythmia quickly. The cases present real-world examples of ECGs, along with patients presenting with symptoms, in an effort to link diagnostic clues using ECG with clinically relevant symptomatology.
